Hey, Dick:

Don't you have a copy of that old Boss's Songbook from the early 60s? Some of those would be fun to post.

Fleming Brown recorded "Flag of Blue, White and Red" on his Folk-Legacy album (now only as a "custom" cassette, I fear) - strong "right-to-work" song from the coal fields of southern Illinois. He claimed to have collected it from someone who preferred to remain anon, but I've always suspected that he wrote it. No proof, though.
